We picked a bad time to visit a rose garden, mid-December in Central Pennsylvania, to see the beauty of the garden. I would recommend visiting in the warmer summer months.

"Historic Hershey Rose Garden,
The historical highlight of Hershey Gardens, this is where it all began in 1937. The brilliant assortment of 3,500 roses representing 175 varieties includes an interesting mix of heights, colors and flower forms of Hybrid Tea, floribunda, shrub, and miniature roses, and features the new AARS rose variety winners each year."Link
